Will go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!This was the perfect spot for a special Mother's Day dinner. The wait staff was very helpful and accommodating (my father is disabled). They recommended a fantastic wine that went with everyone's dinner!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulFood and service were a pure delight. Cannot wait to return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother excellent eveningOur second experience at Catherine Lombardi was as impressive as our first. They have a very sophisticated model and they pull it off beautifully. It is rather pricey, mostly due to a highly exclusive wine list, but our meals were outstanding. From the sazarac to the veal porterhouse everything was very well prepared.
Our Mother's Day celebration was a success because of the excellent food, ambience and relaxed pace at Catherine Lombardi. We look forward to another special occasion to dine there.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there definitelyFirst time there definitely would go again.

Only problem was my second "Makers Mark" arrived as they were clearing the dinner plates and getting ready for coffee and dessert. I ordered it when the dinners arrived. Perhaps a better drink delivery plan is needed.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was really good andThe food was really good and the service was great. The slight downside, out of 5 cocktails that I sampled (no, I didn't DRINK 5 cocktails), I only considered one of them worth trying again. Not bad, but not as good as I expected after the hype.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic, andThe food was fantastic, and our waitress was very knowledgeable about wines.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Restaurant in East Brunswick.Excellent dinner before attending a show at the State Theater.
